I only saw the match from 5-7 2-4* and had no clue how it went before, but Dimitrov's serving stats up to then were amazing. When his serve went off, Richard had the better answers. I am very happy about him winning this, as he often has troubles in late night matches.
Well done, Richard!

Genius is not replicable. Inspiration, though, is contagious, and multiform — and even just to see, close up, power and aggression made vulnerable to beauty is to feel inspired and (in a fleeting, mortal way) reconciled.
beautiful match with lots of great winners from both.
Dimitrov was better on serve and in the first set and half the second, he was
taking more risks than gasquet but then it was the contrary ! Gasquet took more risks
to break back, Dimitrov became more stressed and the momentum shifted.
Anyway, good for gasquet after a long break.
